Dawns i Bawb showcases the talents of inclusive and disability-led community dance groups from Wales, including APT, Dragon’s Heart and Dragon’s Soul (formerly Tan Dance), InSync and WISP.

Dawns i Bawb (‘dance for all’) take pride in their name: it is an organisation which believes that anyone and everyone can dance! Spanning three counties, Dawns i Bawb run a varied programme of activities from large-scale productions to small dance groups of a few individuals. Inclusivity and the idea that dance can positively contribute to disadvantaged and isolated communities are the common themes throughout everything they do.
